Heidi Klum's Parenting Tips For Miranda Kerr


Heidi Klum shared that fellow Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr will have no problem balancing modeling with motherhood.

“I think she’ll be great!” Heidi, 37, told Us magazine at the Project Runway Season 8 Premiere Party in NYC. ” She’s very calm, a smart little cucumber that one, and she’ll do just fine.”

A source shared with Us magazine that Miranda, 27, is “thrilled” to be expecting and has been “telling all her friends, mostly other models, about it.”

Miranda and Orlando Bloom, 33, secretly wed one month after announcing their engagement in June.

“She’s a beautiful young lady who just got married, and they seem like a handsome couple,” Heidi, said. “They’ll make a handsome baby, that’s for sure!”

Heidi, who has four children, had one parenting tip for Miranda: “The children show you most of the time themselves what you have to do to. You’ll learn by watching them, keeping your eyes and ears open.”


Miranda Kerr & Orlando Bloom Expecting Their First Child!


Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr, 27, and husband Orlando Bloom, 33, are expecting their first child together, according to a source. And according to the source, Miranda is thrilled about the baby news! The couple just recently were married in a secret wedding ceremony.

Though it is being reported that Miranda and Orlando are expecting, Miranda’s grandmother says she hasn’t “got a clue” if Miranda is pregnant.

When asked about the reports, Ann Kerr claimed she isn’t aware of the news.

“All those things will come out in time but I don’t know anything,” she said. “I haven’t got a clue. Maybe they will wait a bit longer yet.”

Ann did praise Orlando for whisking her granddaughter away for a secret wedding.

“It was just the two of them,” she said. “They knew if they had invited one they would have had to invite them all and they didn’t want a big wedding because they’re not the flashy kind. They are very quiet.”

Miranda, who is believed to be three months pregnant, has previously been very open about her desire to start a family with Orlando, whom she has been in a relationship with for three years.

“I have always been very open about wanting to be a mother one day,” she said. “And I’ve always thought Orlando would be a great dad!”

Best Wishes!

Melissa Rycroft's Baby Joy: "It's Such A Blessing"


Melissa Rycroft is pregnant, the new issue of Us Weekly reports.

“It was a shock. We weren’t even trying,” said Melissa. Melissa was publicly dumped on The Bachelor before rebounding with a triumphant turn on Dancing With the Stars. She married insurance agent Tye Strickland in December.

“It’s the most wonderful surprise in the world,” added Melissa, who is due in February. “It’s such a blessing.”

Melissa, 27, shared with Us Weekly that starting a family was the last thing on her mind: “He wanted the kids right away, and I was laughing at him going, ‘No, not ready!'”

Though the news was a surprise, Melissa said that her relationship with Tye, 29, has helped her stay calm — and she can’t imagine having a child with anyone else.

“He’s actually cried more than I have,” she shared. “Tye is caring, he’s funny. He’s going to be a great dad.”

Melissa just bought a new home near Dallas with her husband. She divulged that she’s hoping for a boy, and he wants a girl. “We’re going to find out as soon as we can,” she said.

Melissa joked that she’s “eating everything in sight” and craving no-nos like sushi and sub sandwiches.

“Knowing me, I’m going to swell and gain 90 pounds,” she said. “But it’s not about me anymore!”

Gwyneth Paltrow & Bryce Dallas Howard Open Up About Their Experiences With Postpartum Depression


Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest edition of GOOP discusses postpartum depression, which Gwyneth suffered after the birth of her second child. The newsletter also includes Bryce Dallas Howard’s detailed and harrowing account of her experience with postpartum depression.

Gwyneth shares:

When my son, Moses, came into the world in 2006, I expected to have another period of euphoria following his birth, much the way I had when my daughter was born two years earlier. Instead I was confronted with one of the darkest and most painfully debilitating chapters of my life. For about five months I had, what I can see in hindsight as postnatal depression, and since that time, I have wanted to know more about it.
Bryce Dallas Howard found at she was pregnant just five days after her wedding in 2006, when she was only 25, and gained more than 80 pounds during her pregnancy. After giving birth she called her son “it” even though he was named Theo, convinced herself she was a terrible actress and mother and struggled to breast-feed:

For me, breast-feeding was even more painful than giving birth. And despite a lactation consultant offering help, I felt incompetent. I refused to give up, forcing myself to do everything possible so that my son would consume only my breast milk with no supplementation. I forged on, barely sleeping, always either breast feeding or pumping and never getting the hang of it. Occasionally I drifted off for a few minutes, but that decision to “feed at all costs” left me no room for recovery, no space to explore my feelings, no time to rest.
Bryce opened up about her secret daily crying jags, her inability to get downstairs to eat and lashing out at her loved ones:

My husband began shooting a television series, and late evenings when he returned home, I would meet him at the door, shaking with fury, “I’ve hit the wall and gone through it, and I feel I am expected to go further.” He would ask what he could do to help, but knowing there was nothing he could do, I screamed expletives at him, behavior he had never experienced in the seven years we had been together.
With the help of her husband, family and friends, Bryce started seeing a therapist and finally experienced a “critical shift” when shooting a movie in which she played a woman with insane delusions.

Gwyneth told Vogue in 2008 that she was never diagnosed with postpartum depression while she was suffering, and she attributed her depression in part to cutting out her usual treatments such as acupuncture.

“I didn’t know I had it until after it was over,” she said. “I just didn’t know what was wrong with me…I felt really out of my body. I felt really disconnected. I felt really down; I felt pessimistic.”

Gwyneth also shared that losing the baby weight she gained while pregnant with Moses was “by far the hardest thing I have ever done.”

It’s awesome that they have both been so honest and open about their struggles with postpartum depression.
